Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels Shooting Dumb and Dumber Sequel This Fall
It's been 18 years since Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels played adorably clueless BFFs in Dumb and Dumber, and now the actors are planning to reunite for sequel to the 1994 smash comedy.
"We're getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September," director Peter Farrelly told ComingSoon.net at The Three Stooges press junket Sunday. "It's the first sequel we've ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back."
Screenwriting duo Sean Anders and John Morris have been hired to pen the script. According to Farrelly, the new movie starring Carrey, 50, and Daniels, 57, will be nothing like the 2003 prequel, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd (starring Eric Christian Olsen and Derek Richardson).
"We did not do Dumb and Dumberer," Farrelly clarified. "That was a studio thing. We've always wanted to do a sequel and finally Jim called up. Jeff always wanted to do it. We always wanted to do it. Jim was busy, but he called and said, 'We've got to do this thing again.' He had just watched Dumb and Dumber and he said, 'This is the perfect sequel. Let's do it.'"
